Joy tho prlvllego of froo Improved
roads. V. V. Klnley, president of
tho Southern Railway company and
chairman o tho oxecutlvo commlttoo
of tho American Association for
Highway Improvement, makes a plea
to tho farmers of tho country to Join
forces with tho view of improving
country hlghways.especlally thoso
which connect large towns that fur
nish a market for their produce and
shipping points. Ho alludes to the
roads connecting tho principal towns
as " trunk lines" in distinguishing
them from thoso to shipping points.
Mr. PInloy says: "Tho trunk lino
highways, afford Ideal routes for
tourists. Thero aro some localities,
especially thoso most frequented by
tourists, whore the construction of
trunk lino highways of this class 1b
highly desirable and their improve
ment necessarily benefits tho farm
ers adjacent to them. If the greatest
good is to bo done to tho greatest
numbers, tho farmer Is moro Inter
ested In tho Improvements of the
roads of the second class which have
been mentioned thoso radiating
from a market town or shipping sta
tion. By giving attention first to
those parts of tho roads Immediately
adjacent to the towns and shipping
stations and extending improvement
out into tho country year after year
as funds may become available, en
tiro regions will in time be traversed
by good roads. Then, by connecting
up adjoining systems of those radiat
ing roads, trunk lines and through
road for tourists ultimately will be
formed. The Improvement of theso
radiating roads will be benefltilal to
not only tho farmer, but also to a
largo proportion of tho dwellers In
cities and towns. Thoy will enlarge
the trade of retail merchants, facili
tate tho work of rural mall carriers
and extend the limits within which
local newspapers can be circulated
on the day of publication.
WHICAT STALKS FROZEN.
State Zoologist Finds Duiimeo Where
Snow Wiitj Light.
Fears that the wheat crop of Penn
sylvania will fall as far short of the
average as it did last year, because of
tho severity of tho Winter and tho
absence of snow at the time of the
remarkable drop of the temperature
In January -and February, are ex
pressed by llr. H. A. Surface, the
Stato Economic Zoologist, who has
returned to the capitol after visiting
a number of counties in tho southern
and western ends of the State.
Last year tho wheat crop fell short
owing to tho depredations of tho
Hessian fly, which was worse than
had been known in a decado, and al
most ruined tho crops on famous
farms. In many fields tho wheat
stalks have been frozen.

He has prosecuted violators of tho
anti-trust law with such impartiality
that political associates and college
classmates are not spared. Ho has
put such life Into this law that thoso
men, who scoffed at It as a dead let

tho Government may protect them
against their own proneness to
wrongdoing. Theso men who have
felt tho scourago of tho law aro his
He has consistently adhered to a
tariff policy which will cut out tho
craft without impairing the rational
protective features of tho tariff;
which will relievo tho consumer
from extortion without hardship to
tho producer; which will make each
schedule stand on its merits, as do
wned by an imartlal board, Instead
of allowing thoso Interested In ex

In order to perpetuate such duties.

and that all future tariff bills should

clearly did ho see that this was the
only rational policy that ho did not
fear to awaken a roar of denuncia

which did not conform to ft. Tho
general approval with which tho re

accoptanco by tho standpatters as a

reconcilable Insurgents and tho
cries of Democrats for tho abolition

who see tho end of their tariff graft
approaching, and of the politicians,
who wish to keep tho tariff In poll

not tho right kind of enemies for a
faithful public servant?
